6. New Fundamentals and Practices to Increase Cultural Participation and
Develop Arts Audiences, By Jerry Yoshitomi

A conceptual framework is now being developed that provides a new
understanding and foundation for increasing participation in arts and
cultural activities. This framework is based on recent research, writings on
past practice, pilot projects, and the application of theory from related
fields. This work is supported by several foundations, including the Walter
and Elise Haas Fund, the Heinz Endowments, the William and Flora Hewlett
Foundation, the James Irvine Foundation, the John S. and James L. Knight
Foundation, the David and Lucile Packard Foundation, and the
Wallace-Reader's Digest fund. The result is a set of new fundamentals and
practices that can increase the number of participants and audiences, deepen
the participation of current participants, and reach the next generation of
adult participants.

7. The Entrepreneurial Arts Leader

The idea to write The Entrepreneurial Arts Leader was generated after
pondering the reasons for supporting the arts. In a time of static funding
levels, where marketing strategies are lauded as the saviour for the arts,
leadership is often overlooked as a legitimate means of supporting the
arts.  To enable leadership to support the arts, it is essential to
understand the temper of cultural policy, both historic and current, and
then to build on the findings to develop the characteristics of strong arts
leadership.  Using this approach, the importance of entrepreneurial arts
leaders to the vitality and viability of arts organisations becomes
increasingly obvious.  Why entrepreneurial arts leadership?  Its gets back
to how best to support the arts.  This book provides the answer to the
fundamental concern about how best to support the arts, during one of the
more challenging periods of its evolution.  Strong entrepreneurial arts
leaders should deliver an enhanced position for arts organisations,
underpinned also by funding and marketing initiatives.
The Entrepreneurial Arts Leader is grounded in an understanding of cultural
policy, management, art history, entrepreneurship and creativity, and is
cross-disciplinary. It features a comprehensive bibliography and models of
entrepreneurial arts leaders. It is of seminal importance to arts managers,
cultural policy makers and administrators.
Ruth Rentschler is director of arts and entertainment management at Deakin
University, Melbourne, Australia. She is the editor of Making it Happen:
The Cultural and Entertainment Industries Handbook, Shaping Culture and
Innovative Arts Marketing.

9. Forward Planning and the Cost of Collecting

Collections and their preservation are at the very heart of museums and
therefore at the very heart of forward planning for museums. This became
particularly evident in a 1989 study we conducted for the Office of Arts and
Libraries which revealed that the cost of collections accounts for 66% of
museum running costs.
Gail Dexter Lord provides this interesting online article.
